. the western border, the turmoil in libya. the situation in the sudan is problematic. the palestinian conflict. the nightmare in syria. you have sectarianism. all of this. the emergence of terrorism began in the region in high numbers. that is alarming. but i can't simply say it is too difficult. i can't use them, i can't say i have an excuse not to give it the best effort. because i know your system. my approach is if i feel you are not getting the message, i am going to explain it. if you don't want to listen, i will tell you what i am going to do because i believe we share the common goal at the end of the day. >> this is the largest mass sentencing in egypt's history. >> i assume so. it has not actually happened. they asked for their opinion, can i apply the death sentence to these men? he said only to those incriminated in the act of murder. >> how many of those have been directly incriminated in the act of murder? >> 37. the attorney general appealed it. so we will see. >> will it be 37? >> i assume so. >> the spiritual leader is accused of murder? >> look, i can't get into the details o
of 2012, just days after the brutal murders of four americans in the diplomatic outpost in benghazi, libya, i was perhaps to say outright that our government loyed to us about what happened. it is been two years, and through subkwent hearings and leaks and investigative reports and ever- changing reports from the current administration, i never had to recant or clarify my original blunt statement. this week judicial watch finally obtained bombshell e-mails revealing that the top white house aide instructed susan rice to go on shoes and spin the loy that benghazi was due to a video. ine caught with the pants down, the white house continued to play the american public for fools, giving comments like these from white house press hack jay con man carne. >> why are you would hoking back the information and why was it not turned over to the congress and released with all of the other e-mails and it is directly relevant. >> john. >> why did it take a court case. >> i can say again and dpaen and you can keep asking again and again. this document was not about benghazi. >> right? not only president
policy failure also is after the removal of gadhafi in libya, what was the follow-up? in addition to that on egypt, i'm not making that up. it's in the document that they provide to susan rice to prepare her for the sunday shows. >> there it is. here is the problem, hillary clinton was the one who was supposed to a, testify, and go on the talk shows. what's the reason for the terrorist attack? she was the one who had to have said, well, it was the video that caused the attack. they knew she couldn't do that because she was going to run in 2016 and they could not throw her under the bus at that pointt so she hits her head. cou she has to spend two weeks out of commission, can't testify, can't go on the talk shows and they send susan rice to do her dirty work. >> to take bullets. >> she had said that after that. that the video. she's already said that. >> because then that's the point, bob, that they were>> s already too far gone. then they had to get the cover-up and it begs the question of who pushed thegs cover-up. >> who cares? >> i care.e >> if you think russia or china is quak
to engage, when president obama has engaged, libya being an example, they went after him saying why did you do that? it's not a matter of whether they care, it's a matter of they are like the no president. i have a toddler. right now she's in her no stage. she says no to be in the opposition. that's where the republican party is. >> it's a fair comparison to compare republicans to toddlers. >> i was just going to say let's go back where we started and that was the economy. you said there are some people doing well, but there are a lot of people who are concerned. so when you have a population that's concerned about employment, the last thing they are worried about is ukraine. the last thing they are worried about is foreign policy. they are more concerned about my home, my employment opportunity. that's why you see this mixed attitude because a lot of people are concerned about their future and their employment opportunities here at home. >> hopefully as they watch the republican scandal machine crank its way through the spring between the ir, and trying to get john kerry, i hope they will
. they are antiinterventionist, antigoing into these unnecessary wars like iraq and afghanistan and libya. they are all fed up with that. they don't want to fight in ukraine. they don't want to fight in crimea. you saw last summer when obama was going to attack syria, air and missile strikes because of their chemical weapons, the american people rose up as one to stop it cold and they did. the elites john in washington, d.c. of both partys are deeply interventionist, but the american people are antiwar and antiinterventionists, but not isolationists. >> i don't know if you consider obama administration as the elites. he kept us out of wars. i totally agree with that. but after two wars that the american people perceive we lost and an economy that was tanked and pouring money into iraq which is now plunged back into civil war and into afghanistan, which may be better, but it's not a trillion dollars better and these young men and women coming home and no jobs for them, can you blame the american people for saying let's pay attention to home here for a while? >> let mort in. >> i think if you try to take the te
, libya, that killed four american diplomats. an e-mail showed a white house official played a role and susan race and her talk show appearances. ben rhodes writing in an e-mail two days before that the administration wanted her, quote, to underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy. joining the panel this week, "wall street journal" columnist and deputy editor dan henninger. matt kominski and columnist mary anastasia o'grady. matt, i thought all the e-mails were supposed to have been released long ago. how did this turn up now? >> and so did congress. and all the media. this one came out of the request from judicial watch, conservative watchdog group, who put in a freedom of information act request, saying there's more stuff there, we want to see it. that they fought it, but they eventually released it last month, and among these 41 documents -- >> turn it over to committee, though, in the last few days. >> exactly. to the committee and the judicial watch. and among the 41 documents was kind of -- a fairly long e-mail from ben
around the middle east and not talking about the rise of jih jihadists and groups in libya that our intelligence officers saw coming and warned about in the months and weeks preceding the benghazi attack. although no tactical warning this particular attack was coming. the other issue is the overall house gop investigation has been done fragmentarily with the house armed services committee and oversight committees all doing different investigations and in some cases, coming to different conclusions. the fact that john boehner is now having one special committee to investigate all of this is significant and i think the catalyst for that decision from the house speaker was the fact that this important e-mail from the perspective of the republicans was basically kept from congress until about two weeks ago. >> i think that benghazi has become a catch phrase for so many different complaints about the administration by its critics. do you think now there could be specificity to gain traction? when i sat down with the president as this was all unfolding in the first go-round, what was on p
.s. consulate in benghazi libya in 2012. speaker john boehner is forming a select committee to investigate disclosures this week that show the add min strigs misled the american people. mark al enter the in our washington bureau with more. >> reporter: good morning. speaker john boehner as recently as last month saw no reason for such a high-profile committee, but changed his mind this week and announced it just hours after a different house committee subpoenaed secretary of state john kerry to testify. the rapid fire kerry subpoena in special select committee announcement on friday capped off a week that saw the release of a previously unseen white house e-mail written by deputy national security adviser ben rhodes. it was sent in the days after the 2012 attack which killed u.s. ambassador chris stephens and three other americans. republicans call the e-mail a smoking gun that shows the white house wrongly blamed an anti-islamic video, putting, they say, political damage control over the facts. >> none of them think it's a video. none of them. the military the ci
is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to
-related terrorist groups in libya. they used those american-provided weapons to get rid of gadhafi. and then the bloodshed didn't discontinue, but it culminated in the attack upon the consulate in benghazi which resulted in the death of american heroes. so the failure of obama's policy was that the weapons and the material aid that was given to al qaeda resulted in the death of these four american heroes. >> let me play for you, and i mention november 28th of 2012. this is a similar statement made by jay carney may 8th, 2013 saying that the white house's only involvement with the talking points and the state department's only involvement in the talking points was just changing in the name consulate. let me play this for you in light of the rhodes memo and what it means for you. >> cia drafted these talking points and redrafted these talking points. the fact that there are inputs is always the case in a process like this. but the only edits made by anyone here at the white house were stylistic and nonsubstantive. they corrected the description of the building where the facility in b
in the management of crises. remember iraq. remember libya. i believe so far we can be quite proud that even though there are differences here and they're both within and between we have managed to keep things together. i believe we would be operating -- offering of victory on a silver platter if he allowed us either within the eu or in the trans-atlantic community to be divided about the response. i mean that only half seriously then do we should say thank you, mr. president, the reminding is that there is a need to have a vibrant and active nato. some people in europe are beginning to think that maybe after afghanistan we don't need this organization that much anymore. thank you, mr. president, for reminding us that it is a good idea for europe to look at how to diversify our energy sources such. thank you, mr. president, for also reminding us that it is totally essential as an objective for the european union to speak with one voice, not only when things are called bud particularly at times of crises. i believe you have given us enough. i was hoping we would not need this. it gave us up pretty g
in libya, what was the follow will you please? i'm not making that up. that's actually in the document to susan rice to prepare her for the background. >> hillary clinton was the one supposed to testify and b go on those talk shows and to ask the question what was the reason for the terror attack. she couldn't say it was because of the video. they could not throw her under the bus under the at that point. she hits her head and can't go on the talk shows. and they send susan rice -- >> to take bullets. >> she said the video. >> that was the point, bob. they were already too far gone. it begins begs the question who push the video. >> do you think russia or china is quaking in their boots when they see these ferris buler's running the administration? >> leon panetta was not a child. to blanketly indict an administration and call the names you want to call obama and say that's the whole administration is bull. >> do you know who cares -- whoever runs against hillary rodham clinton for president. you know why? >> it's pure politics. >> you can use benghazi politics. you can vary it. the pr
that they pushed this and they had rice say it and when we had gregory hicks, who was number two in libya say in testimony that his jaw dropped when he heard this, that was the first electric moment. this is the second electric moment. >> not only gregory hicks, but the former director of the cia says when he understood susan rice, they had nothing to do with the video. >> they're making a major distinction between the set of talking points which the intelligence community provided and heavily edited after input from the white house and state department. but that set of talking points didn't mention the video. it wasn't ant the video and susan rice's story was all about the video in concert with all the other e-mails that we saw in the white house issued talking points. when you look at the new batch of documents, you have this reclassification or classification of documents that were previously up classified. the timeline is fascinating. june of 2013, judicial watch makes a request for these documents. august of 2013, the house subpoenas the documents. in february of 2014, somebody somewhere
. despite early evidence that in the 2012 attack in benghazi, libya, it was well planned and organized, the obama administration initially blamed it on an anti-muslim video and called it a spontaneous event. this week, new documents reveal ben rhodes tried to re-enforce the video angle with talking points for administration officials that would, quote, underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy. and even with this latest speculation, jay carney is downplaying questions by calling them conspiracy theories and others on the left are piling on. >> diversion subterfuge. benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. why aren't we talking about anything else? what i know of what i have read in the press about those e-mails, were fairly consistent with what was put out there before. i don't think there's anything new there. >> you have to fill the space with something. i have to tell you, benghazi has filled the space way beyond its life. benghazi is a corpse. they tried to arouse it today, and it fell right back down. >> joining us now from new york,

a committee today to investigate the september 11, 2012, attack on the u.s. diplomatic post in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. and separately the republican chairman of the house oversight committee, darrell issa, subpoenaed secretary of state john kerry to testify about the administration's response to the attack. skipping the usual step of issuing an official invitation to appear. a release of internal white house e-mails with new details about the response to the attack has raised questions among republicans about whether the administration was truthful about its initial characterization of the attack. >>> and in afghanistan, a desperate search tonight after days of heavy rain triggered a landslide in a remote village in the northeast. at least 153 people were killed and more than 2,000 are missing tonight. about 300 homes were buried. that's about 1/3 of all the houses in the area. >>> in this country, the news on unemployment took just about everyone by surprise today. 288,000 jobs were added in april. and that helped drive down the une
, libya. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. democrats say this new investigation is a ploy to embarrass the white house before november elections, but republicans say the administration just hasn't told the truth. nancy cordes reports. >> reporter: for nearly 20 months, four separate committees in the republican-led house have held dozens of hearings, examined documents, and released reports on the benghazi attacks, but house speaker john boehner said today a special new committee is needed because the obama administration is "intent on obstructing the truth about benghazi," and "willing to defy subpoenas." boehner had long argued a special committee was unnecessary, but aides say he unnecessary, but aides say he changed his mind this week after the white house released previously unseen e-mails in response to a lawsuit. one of the e-mails was sent three days after the libyan attack. deputy national security adviser ben rhodes wrote in public appearances u.n. ambassador susan rice should underscore these protests are rooted in an internet vi

libya, media reports said the same thing. and investigations by the senate intelligence committee and "the new york times" both come up with the same conclusion. so even with what susan rice said, if not entirely accurate was kind of close to what other people found. so if there's a difference of opinion here, it wasn't -- >> i think it's close to what we know months and years later now. my question, is this something in the republican brain soup? did they somehow get the idea that something bad happened here? if you've got boehner under sodium pen thol, imagiathol, im thought -- what's your worst case scenario about what happened. not press releases that were issued. did anybody deserve blame for a beloved ambassador getting killed? >> i don't have any idea what they believe. i think some believe that. >> believe what? hillary was out doing something else? >> something like that. or that there had to be some kind of lack of preparedness on the obama administration's part for this to have happened. i think a lot of them don't even believe it. they're really drinking crazy juice ov

libya. efficient transport and specialization brought ostia's economy to a high level of complexity, and surely had a profound effect on people's lives and the character of their city. that effect can be easily seen today in a living city, a city like fez, morocco. archaeologists have come to fez because the same high degree of specialization suggested by the ruins of ostia can be seen here in the flesh. the population and density of the old city of fez has remained the same since the 10th century. archaeologist david webster. the old city of fez had about 120,000 people for its total population. this would have been an equivalent of a population density of tens of thousands of people per square mile. now, the only reason why that was possible, especially in a nonindustrial context, was that you had a very effective agricultural environment around fez within, say, 15 or 20 miles radius. but you also had very effective forms of nonhuman transport -- donkeys, camels, horses, mules -- that could bring in all of the kinds of supplies that the city needed. now, that's one reason why you

the health care act. the situation in libya was a tinderbox. those brave people who volunteer to work for our safety and our security understood this. it is not the same thing as i'm not a crook. it is not the same thing as aluminum tubes and mushroom clouds. this is always a risk area when people go into a country to try to make peace or solve problems in a dysfunctional government and people are rebelling. yes, that film did have something do with it and there was coverage of it. it was two weeks in the new york times and the washington post that showed that it was already a very dangerous situation and this horrific, and moronic film that came out that degraded their god and their religion was all it took for them -- from situation to explode. i think it is time for us to move on and stop with the distractions and all of the division because that is what this party always does. they point the finger at the women, fear the enemy. upon the finger at the minority, they're are the enemy. they want to divide us. we have to start thinking for ourselves and realize that if we don't come together
